UGANDA : KCC Leopards Stop A-1 Challenge

By Aloysius Byamukama

KAMPALA City Council (KCC) Leopards maintained their unbeaten run in the MTN women basketball league with a 42-36 win over defending champions A-I Challenge on Sunday.

Becky Akullo and Miriam Hamara made 11 and 10 points respectively to KCC capitalised on a 20-12 first half lead to register a sensational win, while Rosette Meya and Viola Akuma had 10 and 8 points for the defending champions.

A-I would have made a strong come back in the last quarter, but erratic finishing cost them with Meya and Betty Namukasa being the culprits.

In the men's Yello Max, former champions Falcons also maintained their top spot after stopping Sadolin Power 59-47.

Fast improving Louis Habineza notched 14 points with Henry Malinga and Sam Obol making 13 and 11 respectively, while Wilbrod Okecho and Ken Balyejusa made 15 and 13 points for Power who remained in fourth position behind defending champions Nkumba Marines.
